The Seth Meiller Foundation is currently supporting three target programs.
Echo Hill Outdoor School
SMF grants scholarships for students from a chosen Baltimore City Public School (such as Hamilton Elementary School) to attend an expanded four-day program at EHOS each school year. The presence and visibility of EHOS through SMF has encouraged Francis Scott Key Elementary/ Middle School to restart their EHOS yearly activity by sending 5th grade classes to EHOS. This project remains special since it focuses on experiential and environmental education, which is one of the keynote areas of interest in the mission of the Seth Meiller Foundation.

Francis Scott Key Elementary/Middle School
The Foundation has been supporting the “Life Skills” Program (previously termed the Moderately Intellectually Limited (MOIL) Students Program) at FSK, the program where Seth used to teach. Life Skills students participate in a SMF-funded boat trip onboard the skipjack Sigsbee with the Living Classrooms Foundation in Baltimore, MD each school year as well as other field trips or experiences outside the classroom. SMF volunteers attend these trips and enjoy interacting with the students. FSK Life Skills students compete in both ice-skating and field game competitions each year with the Special Olympics of Baltimore City. Each year SMF provides a graduation package for each student including grants and graduation presents. Francis Scott Key's Website and the Life Skills program.
Special Olympics of Baltimore City
Special Olympics is dedicated to empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities to become physically fit, productive and respected members of society through sports training and competition. The Seth Meiller Foundation has supported Special Olympics of Baltimore City with active participation from a range of students, including the Life Skills students from FSK in the ice-skating competition at Mount Pleasant Ice Arena and the field game competition at Morgan State University annually. A number of SMF volunteers help out at both of the competitions each year.
